Asus pulled out all the stops with the new Zephyrus S gaming laptop and magically packed Nvidia’s latest RTX 2080 graphics card and the very latest i7 into a delightfully thin and light format that feels just fantastic in hand. Also, they have done away with the usual arrangement of a small SSD drive paired with a big, slow HDD, and they’ve dropped a whopping 1 TB SSD into this flagship model. It’s a strange setup with keys that run to the edge of the deck, leaving no room for wrist support, but that’s the tradeoff of fitting the superb 17 144 Hz screen into what looks and feels like a 15” ultrabook. Of course, the recipient of a gift of this price will have to be someone extra special!
